How To Make The Most Delicious Italian Stuffed Artichokes
Artichokes are so underestimated. A lot of folks think they are either a lot of work or just don’t know how simply amazing they are stuffed.
Artichokes make the most amazing appetizers too. I’ve even had them as a main course for dinner too! They are super good for you as well – they are a great source of fiber, low in calories and are loaded with anti-oxidants.
Don’t think just because they are “stuffed” that takes away from just how good they are for you. In essence, they are lightly stuffed so eating one is not so guilt-laden as you think.
I love adding the Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese – it’s literally the ingredient that pulls everything together perfectly.
OK, so, let’s get to it. I’m going to show you just how I’ve prepared these Italian Stuffed Artichokes and how you can easily make some too!
In case you are wondering, how do I eat them? Well, you pull off a leaf and eat the beefy part of it by scraping it off with your teeth. The tips of the artichoke are loaded with a type of veggie meat that is super delicious especially loaded with the breadcrumb mixture. Once you get to the base of the artichoke, there’s where you hit pay dirt! There’s a delicious thick meaty heart there that’s amazing!
You can leave out the dipping butter and lemon sauce if you are looking to keep it healthy. What? Did I just say that? Go for it! I like to pour the sauce into little ramekins for each person. It’s so foo-foo isn’t it?
The buttery dipping sauce is so amazing – I’ll doubt you will want to miss out on it – but, if you do, the stuffed artichokes are still off the hook delicious!
I hope you get to try this recipe. It’s always a hit in my home whether I make them for a special occasion or just a relaxing dinner meal at home. I always buy extra artichokes too because they are perfect for leftovers. I microwave them for about 30 seconds and bam – just as good as the first time.
PIN IT for later!
